The ocean is often deemed as being one of the scariest places on Earth.
This is mainly due to the fact that the majority of the ocean is still a mystery, it’s said that we still have no idea what lies underneath a large portion of our oceans, which means we cannot rule out the possibility of a giant kraken or a swarm of megalodons deep down, lurking at the bottom of the sea.
However, most people don’t know how scary rivers can be until they’ve witnessed for themselves a few of the terrifying creatures located in river waters.
Rivers are notorious for being one of the most terrifying places for creatures and apex predators to live freely do whatever they please. Crocodiles, giant snakes and rare species of fish can be found in rivers.
In addition to that, river creatures are far more terrifying than those in the ocean, since we more frequently have the possibility of running into them.
These creatures live on both land and water, which means they have the ability to prey on your belongings and can even harm you. They’re by no means cute or adorable and you shouldn’t ever be taking selfies with them.
It’s also in rivers where you will find some of the most horrific creature combinations, where fish and other freshwater creatures grow their colonies and develop according to their circumstances. This development usually means sharper, longer teeth, larger sizes, longer lifespans, and more agility
This list contains river creatures that aren’t only predatory in their environment, but they can also attack humans and some of them are large enough to swallow a grown man whole.
1 Goonch Catfish
Catfish are a classic fisherman hunt due to their variety, tenaciousness, and mystery. However, this particular species is known to be more of a danger than any other creature labeled under catfish. This specie that can be located between India and Nepal was found to be a gigantic abnormality.
An incident where a young boy was dragged down the river has led many biologists and local survey teams to search down the river where they came to the horrifying conclusion that the catfish started preying on human beings.
Attacks on humans from catfish are quite rare, but this particular species has been found on numerous occasions to be the cause of death for those swimming in rivers where they can be found.
Many believe that this catfish is still underwater lurking for prey, rather it’s small fish, mammals, or even humans in the Kali river. Some locals claim that this is the largest catfish to have ever been seen. Locals also want the mystery of the human eating catfish to be resolved before they go about their business.
